In one of the most high-profile transfers in this January window, Anthony Martial has joined Sevilla from Manchester United in a 6-month loan deal. The 26-year-old, who had only started two Premier League games for Red Devils this season, was pushing for a move away from the club to get some playing time.

His transfer to Spain could probably be the turning point in his career as he aims to get back into the spotlight. As he was presented as the player of Sevilla at the stadium, a special message was awaiting for Martial which indeed caught the footballer by surprise.
